Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not "courage" that UK gov is wanting.

It is nice to find that EU gov "surrogates" have taken initiative to proffer a meaning for the "negotiation period" --as distinct from "transition period" stipulated by the withdrawal agreement-- as defined by expiration date, as yet altered by EU-UK agreement.

Surely UK gov will want to debate the advantage of altering that date, if the expiration date of the "transition period" cannot be advanced, too.

If a so-called "extension" is taken up, EU-UK gov afford themselves less time to strike ahh mutually beneficial ETA. And that would appear counter-productive change to proceedings, given past performance of the parties seeking an orderly resolution.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
